NE(E)T working – towards inclusion in international youth work
This training course will bring together professionals working with young people in NEET situation and those working in organisations which offer young people international youth work opportunities (especially through Erasmus+ Youth in Action/ European Solidarity Corps). The TC will give time and space to participants to share and gain knowledge and skills on how to work strategically with young people in NEET situation, how to use Erasmus+ Youth in Action and other international youth work possibilities as a tool in their work and to find a way into trustworthy partnerships on national and international level and good quality projects. There are many young people, who due to their life situation miss out the opportunities that are often promoted as open for all. Those are the young people who might in many ways be the ones who benefit the most from a possibility to be involved together with their peers from other countries in an international project or voluntary activity. Background This training course is organized in the framework of the Erasmus +: Youth in Action NA’s strategic partnership on Inclusion. The main objective of this partnership is to improve and increase the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities in the programme, in line with the Erasmus+ Inclusion and Diversity Strategy in field of youth. This partnership fosters sustainable engagement and capacity building of organizations either already working with young people with fewer opportunities in international activities through E+: YiA or those organizations planning to do so. An important part of an international cooperation is a strong partnership of organisations, especially when it comes to involvement of young people with fewer opportunities. It is important to cooperate with trustful partners both in your own country and abroad to make sure that young people taking part in an international project get support according to their abilities and needs. It is also important to know the young people you and your partners work with and the realities in your partner countries. The aims we are working towards during this TC. The main objectives of the training: – To understand the different concepts of young people in NEET situation on international level; – To understand the different realities of young people in NEET situation in the involved countries; – To understand how Erasmus + Youth in Action / European Solidarity Corps can be used to include young people in NEET situation (incl real examples with highs and lows of the work); – To know tools to work with young people in NEET situation within Erasmus +/ESC framework; – To develop partnerships to implement Erasmus+ / ESC projects both on international and national level; – To find ways to work more strategically and in cooperation with other organisations to involve young people in international youth work. Team The TC will be developed in an international team of NA’s and trainers, Natasha Gudakovska and Paul Kloosterman.
